As far as I can tell, the physics engine in EFL is no longer a thing, and thus the dependency on "bullet" could be removed. This allows installing EFL without dragging in gtk2, and some other dependencies. Nothing in Enlightenment really ended up using this engine, either. Further, the efl-git package in AUR, maintained by the E developer himself, does not depend on bullet.

This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Deferred
Additional comments about closing:  next release of efl in arch will fix this as per my comment above - and that is pending theme work. don't worry. i'll sync efl-git and the efl core package and this is a dependency i know is wrong already.

I'll fix this next release of efl. next efl upstream is basically waiting on me doing theme work which is progressing decently - flat theme is already in and nowi'm about 20% through doing the color class switch. so when all of this is done, then time to release then this package gets updated and i'll fix things - probably will end up matching the efl-git almost identically as i actually build efl-git far more often for testing (and of course upstream efl daily or many times a day), thus the closer this is to the -git packages, the more likely it is to be correct and work.
